Founder and Previous Chairman

Donald Williams
Donald WilliamsFounder and Previous Chairman

Donald Williams, born in the community of Joint wood, St Elizabeth, was a true example of hard work, dedication and sportsmanship. From his early days in the Army, he honed his leadership skills and gained valuable security experience by training officers and rising to the rank of Chief Petty Officer. After garnering additional leadership experience as a manager at Tropical battery, he decided to use his military training and entered the world of private security.

After some time he acquired United Protection Limited, then Allied Protection Systems and Services Limited, which later merged into Allied Protection Limited. He remained Chairman of the company until his passing.

Under Mr. Williams’ leadership Allied Protection Limited has grown into one of the nation’s top security firms. He was the first of over fifteen Jamaican’s to hold the distinction of being a Certified Protection Professional (CPP) and was also an active member of the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS), even holding the title of Chairman for the Jamaican chapter of the organization. Adding to his credits, he also served on the National Minimum Wage Commission for Security Guards as well as on the Board of the Private Security Regulation Authority.

During his leadership at Allied Protection Limited and his tenor as President of the Jamaica Society for Industrial Security, he advocated for the adequate treatment and pay of security officers and also for the proper management of contracts and regulations in the security industry.

In 2006, he received the Governor General’s achievement award, which highlights those who have made outstanding contributions to the community.

Mr. Williams was a member of the Kiwanis Club of Kingston for over 25 years and instituted feeding programs and other initiatives for the less fortunate.

He became a member of the Liguanea Club in the early 90’s and developed a love for the sport of squash, so much so that he sponsored several tournaments through both United Protection Limited and Allied Protection Limited.

United Protection Limited was established in 1982; the owners then subsequently acquired Allied Protection Systems and Services Limited in 1991 and operated it as a separate entity until the first quarter of 2002. In early 2002, the Board of Directors agreed to merge the operations of Allied Protection Systems and Services Limited with United Protection Limited. It was also unanimously endorsed that the merged company would  operate under the name of Allied Protection Limited.

Under the leadership of Donald Williams, CPP, chairman, Allied Protection Limited commenced operations on April 1, 2002. Allied Protection Limited is locally based providing direct access to ownership and senior management who will work with you personally and that access leads to quicker more knowledgeable decisions. It is also a fully-owned Jamaican private limited liability company, which has been so registered.

Established on March 31, 1982, we proudly boast over thirty six (36) years’ experience and has been a trusted leader in the Jamaican Private Security industry. With proven expertise in a number of markets, we deliver an integrated customer experience by providing and maintaining effective security solutions, service field force and a strong monitoring network, all backed by the support of many highly trained employees. Our operation is spread across the island with the exception of the parish of St. Thomas.
